A video of Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar is going viral. In this, he is seen bowling Mumbai Indians player Sanjay Yadav on the best yorker during practice. Arjun was part of Mumbai Indians in the last season as well, but he did not get a chance to play. This time too Mumbai has lost 6 consecutive matches, but Arjun is not being fielded. In such a situation, this video is bringing forth the talent of Arjun. Fans are demanding that now Arjun should be included in the playing XI.
Questions are being raised on Arjun’s talent
There has been a debate on familyism in India. Children of celebrities also often become the target of this. If the son of an actor becomes an actor, then he is said to get the benefit of dynasty. Trollers have been continuously raising questions on Arjun too. Many people believe that he does not have any special talent, but being the son of Sachin is going in favor of Arjun. Now perhaps Arjun has decided to prove this thinking wrong. From sweating in the gym to practicing, Arjun is leaving no stone unturned.

Mumbai is facing the consequences of auction mistakes
Looking at Mumbai Indians, it is difficult to believe that once this team used to speak in IPL. The flop of the opening pair of captain Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan is going against the team. Questions are being raised on the decision to buy Ishaan at a hefty price of Rs 15.25 crore. Former players like Shane Watson are openly saying that they got an idea of Mumbai’s poor performance only when they spent huge sums of money on wrong player selection during the auction.
Without the Pandya Brothers, Rahul Chahar and Trent Boult, Mumbai’s bowling looks very ordinary. There is no other bowler for MI to match Jasprit Bumrah, who can curb the run-rate of the opposing teams.
